Former Indiana regulatory attorney reprimanded

Indianapolis — The Indiana Supreme Court has publicly reprimanded a former regulatory attorney for negotiating a job for himself with Duke Energy Corp. while presiding over a case involving millions of dollars in cost overruns at a Duke project.

The Indianapolis Star reports the court voted 5-0 this week to reprimand Scott Storms, whom Duke later fired amid an ethics flap over the utility's dealings with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission.

Storms was the IURC's general counsel and chief administrative law judge in 2010 when it considered whether to pass along to customers cost overruns at Duke's coal-gasification project in Edwardsport.

Storms has repeatedly said he didn't mislead his supervisors and didn't compromise his duties, but he agreed to the reprimand. A phone message seeking comment was left for Storms Thursday.
